Editorial Reviews

Review

'Holquist is an exceedingly thoughtful interpreter of Bakhtin ... Dialogism will certainly be welcomed by all those many readers fascinated by the many faces of Mikhail Bakhtin.' - Slavic and East European Journal

'With only two comprehensive accounts of Bakhtin's contributions available in the West ... Holquist's attempt to provide a contextualized summary of Bakhtin's work is a formidable accomplishment in its own right, resulting in a volume that will be of interest for those seeking a unified, general understanding of Bakhtin.' - Discourse Studies

About the Author

Michael Holquist is Professor of Comparative and Slavic Literature at Yale University. He is the author of Dostoevsky and the Novel and Mikhail Bakhtin (with Katerina Clark), and has also edited three collections of Bakhtin's writings.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After I have read Bakhin's book and then come to this one, I found it is clearly presented and makes it easier to understand Bakhin, whose ways are not so Amercian. But if you have not read Bakhtin's book, this one is still a good book, but not so understandable.
I love this book and highly recommend it.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By toronto on November 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is not the book to start with in reading Bakhtin. It is very theoretical, somewhat monologic, and focusses on aspects of Bakhtin such as chronotopes that are not of much interest to the beginner. The readings are interesting : particularly the reading of The Great Gatsby. The truth is that you should head for Bakhtin himself, particularly (if you have read any Dostoyevsky) the writings on Dostoyevsky, or the carnivalesque in Rabelais.

Format: Paperback
This study of one of the twentieth century's most respected and influential thinkers offers both a comprehensive overview of his work, and a valuable starting point for further inquiry into the burgeoning arena of Bakhtin Studies.
